. john bray bender is a republican strategist and top adviser to rick santorum and robert shrum, democratic strategist and columnist for the daily beast. john, you're on the inside. you know something about this. do you understand how somebody would think that the electorate that's going to participate in 2012, in a general election with barack obama, an african-american, a democrat, and a relatively popular president would create a different electorate than the one you saw say in 2010 or in a primary situation? >> well, i think -- as you know, every poll starts with an assumption. here is who we think is going to show up and vote, therefore that's who we ask the question of. republicans and not just the romney campaign, but republican pollsters all across the country guessed wrong. we didn't see the intensity that there was there for the president, particularly among young voters. we oversampled male white voters. and, you know, you add all that together and you're going to see two, three, four-point differences. plus, the assumption always is that the incumbent is not going to
's no way that a santorum could have done it. >> that is preposterous. i don't know santorum -- it's hard to say, right? but i do know that we see successful conservative governors changing the landscape of how their states operate. we have scott walker in wisconsin who beat back multimillion dollar push by the unions to survive that recall. we have john kasich in ohio who's had his ups and downs, but that state is humming along really well. megyn: what about the social issues? >> they didn't come into play. megyn: they're zeroing in on. >> those social issues did not come into play except to the democrats' advantage. why? because they could define mitt romney as a part of the war on women because why? mitt romney never really made the affirmative case to women. when was mitt romney making the case to female small business owners? where was mitt romney talking about the fact that the faith-based community has done more to lift women up from poverty and dejection and difficulty than any community i believe in the united states, including the mormon faith which has done more to help people
because he was the chief backer of the rick santorum super pac. i interviewed him in february and asked about taxes, do you think rich people should pay more taxes? he said people don't realize how well the people self tax. there's a fellow who is ceo of target. recreated a museum of music. he put in $200 million of his own money. i have another friend to give $400 million to a facility in south dakota or someplace like that. look at bill gates to gave $750 million to fight aids. we should get rid of taxes as much as we can because you get to decide how you spend your money rather than the government. if you have a certain cause, an art museum and want to support it it would be nice to have the choice to support it. where we are headed you will be taxed, your money taken away and the government will support it. it is a question. do you believe the government should be taking your money and spending it for you or do you want to spend it for you. you went on to say actually, it is absurd to tax the reproductive billionaire guys because of everything they do for us. if you look at what ste
of mitt romney versus his primary supporter rick santorum. evangelical voters weren't as supportive of mitt romney early on. there were class divides. we're looking at the demographic data because that's one thing the president's team has made clear they're relying on to turn out the vote for him, the demographic groups that tend to back him. younger voters, african-americans, younger women. they do really inform the types of people you're out to get at the polls. sometimes, for example, there's the health care... 50% of voters favored repealing some or all of obama care. that shows it's a divided country but that doesn't suggest who will win tonight. >> i think we ought to em fa that these exit polls have been done for many years. we have had trouble in some years. i don't expect there will be trouble this year. those of us in this business that have been doing it understand that we have to treat these very tentative lie and at the end of the day people are voting to elect the next wt and the next congress. we're really going to wait for those results to go in. these give us a litt
home, governor. and people like gingrich and santorum were warning about that last year. it's always easy to look back and hindsight is 2020. a lot of them were concerned that a more establishment type like mitt romney would not do that type of aggressive messaging on conservative issues that, for instance, won in 2010. and that have been so successful in various governors races as well. >> two things i want to mention. first, i do want to say i think mitt romney gave it his very best. he worked hard, he worked his heart out. i have got no criticisms of mitt romney. if anybody would want to criticize mitt romney. he was my opponent four years ago when we both ran. you know, i can probably find a way to do it. i'm not going to. i worked hard for him because he was the nominee. i think that's what we do as republicans. once we get a nominee. we close in the ranks and we help him. >> he also learned from campaigns that failed. he didn't get as many of the mormon vote as john mccain did, governor. i mean -- >> -- i don't understand that. >> laura: we're beyond kind of niceties at this po
that michele bachmann or rick perry, or rick santorum didn't was running a personal candidacy. he didn't come in at the head of some movement, with ideological points to prove. what he believed i think and certainly what his campaign staff believed, was the country was heading down a terrible trajectory, it required a man of profound competition to fix, and he was going to present himself as somebody who was more competent than president obama in his closing argument, he said repeatedly to voters in wisconsin and new hampshire and virginia, you don't have to settle. what's holding us back from being a great nation is a lack of leadership. there is something both moving and ultimately very thin about the alternative that mitt romney presented because it was based so much on the promise of himself. >> yeah. the humanity, be we were talking about that -- what was supposed to be a victory celebration gone horly, horribly wrong, the sense they were on the precipes the golden ring was within their grasp and snatched at the very last minute was not something they were prepared for. >> not at all. as
bachmann. we had newt gingrich. we had rick santorum. we had herman cain and rick perry. five of them, perhaps inartfully refer to them as the clown posse, but when they all left the stage, mitt romney was the guy left standing, by the process of elimination. >> we didn't know when herman cain was saying 9-9-9 he was speaking german. >> romney won more by the process of elimination over these characters. that's the point. >> cogently stated fact of history. because they didn't like the other guys. they didn't like him. michael and howard, thank you. back to talk about the big moments. we're going positive in a moment. up next, the right wing's most outrageous conspiracy theories are coming up about president obama. of course their favorite target. this is "hardball," the place for politics. so you say men are superior drivers? yeah. then how'd i get this...

about perry getting back into the race, santorum -- >> oh, lord help us, no. please. >> i swear. >> please, no, not the return of rick perry. you cannot be serious. >> i swear to you. >> oh, lord. okay, jimmy, mr. cuccinelli, he sued over obama care, lost. sued the epa, lost. is there anything more dangerous to a political party than a leader who consistently picks fight he loses? >> how many times do you have to lose to be kaumd a loser. >> right. >> let's be honest about this, you have -- and i'm a resident of the commonwealth of virginia. >> you are, indeed. you know this man. >> well, actually no, i really don't. i don't care that he's a republican. to me it's not about your political ideology. it's about whether or not you think people ought to have equal rights. the theory of separate but equal is no longer the law of the land. under the 14th amendment we've said, and look at the panel you have on the screen now, you have a gay man, latino woman, and an african-american woman. under mr. cuccinelli's sort of theory of law, the 14th amendment doesn't apply to me as a gay man
. romney does not have a clue. he should have lost in 2012 to rick santorum. however, he is flip-floping every issue from the primaries. american people have some of the brightest minds. why don't they see he is a fraud? america is not for sale. >> i take your voting for president obama. host: republican calller. william, north carolina. caller: i was going to vote for obama, but i am real religious, and i do not agree with the same-sex marriage. the unemployment has gone up. i've been out of a job for two years. i've just been crying about it. . the change i have is all the change in my pocket. did you vote for president obama in 2008? caller: no, i did not. host: next calller. caller: thank you for taking my call. i would like to echo what billy graham has written. the legacy we leave behind for our children, grandchildren and this great nation is crucial. i realize this election could be my last. i believe it is vitally important we cast our candidates on -- -- that we support the nation of israel. support the typical definition of marriage between a man and woman. host: is th

[cheers and applause] and it starts with economic growth. what can government do to the federal level to get the economy growing again? look to your governor in iowa. how about balancing the budget and dealing with your? so you don't have one? [applause] how about tax rates that generate the revenue government needs but are not so unpredictable or high that people are afraid to invest in your economy moving forward? how about the regulatory process that takes into account the costs of regulation and not just theoretical benefits of regulation? an investment in energy policy, not just energy politics? host: watched the whole speech at our website c-span.org. this year is th
rick santorum was in the senate he proposed legislation that would have prohibited the national hurricane center from providing any information to the public that his for-profit entity could have made possible. meaning if you were poor and couldn't afford a 900 line, then who gives a you know what if you were blown away. and when i heard his words i said to myself it's my book. >> stephanie: yeah, when you see that clip from the primaries saying any time you can send something back to the states good. and if you can privatize it better. >> yeah, there's a word for it, i don't think it's in the official guide to neuroses but it's called mish-a-gas. >> stephanie: i know what you are saying. >> the [ inaudible ]. but in the meantime the interesting thing is how many people including paul ryan, and of course, romney and others have fallen for this crap. >> stephanie: yeah, stephen we were saying earlier in the show it really bogles the mine go wait a minute, you are going to figure out how to try to make a profit off of people in the middle of an emergency and
. the trajectory has been incredible. >> mitt romney is a guy rick santorum said could never get elected. megyn: she says he had so much confidence he thought whatever he did would work. we'll pick it up after the break. emblematic of the problems the president faced these last four years. >> it's a powerful metaphor. there is a great story there, too, as well in terms of the government's response. if this had been a republican president and people on staten island were screaming into the cameras please help us, we have no food, they are running the new york city marathon. there is a real controversy there as well. many people are saying we are katrina. of course, obama gets a pass because it's a few days before the election. all the promises going back to a fundamental promise that his chairperson of the economic council said 5.6% unemployment after the stimulus. it went up to 7.9% today. the promises are broken. the expectations have not been met and this is a failed presidency and i'm hoping next week i'll have a big smile on my face. megyn: you talk about the unemployment promises and cutti
, moderates versus conservatives? >> i thought to mention rick santorum. we talked about, most of them are actually more -- and also given where the current debate is this morning, are more in the moderate portion of the party. and they will be coming forward in various ways saying i have the answer to this question which is the hispanic question. also it's the question with women. how to reach out to those voters and speak to them in an effective way. >> it's going to be a determination of what counts as moderate in the republican party. if it means something that's more accommodationist on immigration, it's not going to be something that's dramatically more accommodationist on taxes. but it might be something a million or above. on fiscal issues the republican party is not going to abandon moorings, pro-life definition. it simply can't. no nominee i can see in the foreseeable future is going to either. those things will have to be merged in a way that a post-reagan, post-bush and a new definition of the party. one of the things that held mitt romney back, he did not take an it. we lo
'll see the likes of mike huckabee or sarah palin or rick santorum emerge as a favorite when my opinion is none of the above could be elected in a general election. so they have to focus on that process sooner than later, as well. >> okay. michael, karen, always a pleasure. thank you. >>> office politics with eugene robinson, his take on how a weak republican party is bad for the country. in america today we're running out of a vital resource we need to compete on the global stage. what we need are people prepared for the careers of our new economy. by 2025 we could have 20 million jobs without enough college graduates to fill them. that's why at devry university, we're teaming up with companies like cisco to help make sure everyone's ready with the know how we need for a new tomorrow.

popularity has taingd. the trajectory has been incredible. >> mitt romney is a guy rick santorum said could never get elected. megyn: she says he had so much confidence he thought whatever he did would work. we'll pick it up after the break. >> if we are willing to work for it and fight for it and believe in it, then i am absolutely certain that generations from now we'll be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick, and jobs to the jobless, this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow, and our planet began to heal. megyn: alan colmes and mike gallagher. peggy noonan writes maybe in the wake of hurricane sandy people will be feeling angst and leaning towards the status quo or maybe they will feel he failed to slow the ocean's rise. there is a question about whether that promise, that rhetoric and what happened with hurricane sandy with the oceans is somehow h emblematic of the problems the president faced these last four years. >> it's a powerful metaphor. there is a great story there, too, as well in terms o

[cheers and applause] as always, a great crowd of the intro west chester, ohio. this is outstanding. i have done a lot of great rallies over the last couple of weeks. i have three simple reasons. i would like to go through them quickly with you. president obama comes to ohio and likes to take credit for getting our state to back on track. we know that is not true. it is the work governor kasich and i have done with to balance the budget and get our state back on track. but we did not raise taxes. we cut taxes. here is my second reason. this one is personal for me. my youngest son is 18 years old and he voted for the first time this year in a presidential election. a couple of weeks ago his friends were gathering at our house. i decided
as evangelicals, supported rick santorum over mitt romney, many uneasy on his views like abortion and his moremmon faith >> you originally said that the romney campaign snubbed social conservatives. >> he has tried to make that outreach to social conservatives as well as economic conservatives, done a good job here in iowa. >> reporter: iowa's evangelical voters seem to be moving into mitt romney's camp here in traditionally democratic dubuque, catholic voters we spoke with here are split over issues like abortion, contraception and the government's role in providing for the poor. >> the life issues, which many catholics, most catholics hold dear and central to their faith, but then there's this bloef that remains that within the democratic party somehow cares for the poor better. i just think it comes down to that tepgs. >> reporter: how big a role does your catholic religion play in your vote? >> i think it's big. i'm an ex-nun. and i -- the group of nuns that i'm associated with to this day are pushing for obama. >> is the pro choice stance difficult for you to reconcile? >> it was difficult. i
, newt gingrich and rick santorum that gave a lot of ammunition to the obama team when they went after mr. romney's time at bain capital and the obama team kept that theme going. >> they won, the president won and should be congratulated and the team should be congratulated because they put together a strategy and tactics that won a race that was very difficult to win but i think they're going to be governing and presiding over an incredibly divided country and unless they figure out a way to unify that and deal with that it's going to be very difficult. >> i got to bring this question to george will. correct me if i'm wrong, george. right after president obama was elected four years ago, went to your house, didn't he, for a dinner party reaching out to conservatives, that was supposed to be the promise of his first term, a person who could heal the division in this country. clearly though he's been re-elected not all that healing has happened. what went wrong in that relation between the president and who is to blame and how much on each side. >> books are already being written about wha
. the guys in iowa, rick santorum, the folks in south carolina who gave the primary to newt gingrich. beyond that, i feel -- ever since george of the bush's second term, there has been an anti-establishment reaction within the republican party. they were embarrassed and angry with the bush administration. conservatism turned out to not be what they wanted. they wanted small government conservatism. i think everybody loves to many people into the tea party caldron. but you get the tides that are determined to come here and do something against leadership -- you get the types that are determined to come here and do something against leadership. in ohio, he mentioned he likes the trappings of office, if you will. he mentioned to me, how much leadership can you exert? how much control can you exert over your own conference? given the freshmen. and he said to be, it is not the freshmen. he said it is some of the older members. he did not say who. i would have preferred if he did. that is those who are trying to have perfect scores on these ratings. they are the problem. because anti- leadership i
. as soon as it won the nomination, i think it was one rick santorum dropped out, they decided to focus on discipline. they thought any topic that was not on obama are the economy was not worth a dollar spent. their view. that is almost a word-for-word quote from their strategists. is spent entirely until just before the convention on banging on the economy and the obama. to a certain extent, we have an incumbent president running for re-election, it is a referendum on the incumbent. it is a referendum on the economy. but the thing about it is, you have got to define your own candidate in a way and a positive way biographical advertising and testimonial advertising. you need to make them a real, three-dimensional, trustworthy individual. think of the boy scouts. that is a general idea. that is a general thing you want to get across. you need to apply that to your candidate in order to protect them from the slime that is coming. in the romney campaign, they adamantly chose not to do that. the obama campaign, give credit where credit is due, they saw their opponent was undefined. i sat wi

, would it have been better to have gingrich or santorum or perry or bachmann? who was the alternative at least this time around? who was it? >> i personally would say jon huntsman would have had the best chance. he couldn't get through the primary process. >> because they couldn't see his values. >> also, they started their campaign off doing something you probably shouldn't do, kicking your own party around. >> are you forgetting the hermanator? >> as richard said, the primary process rewards extremes in many cases. so how could a guy like -- let's say jeb bush, this is just for argument's sake, 2016, how does he get through a primary process given his stances on things like immigration? can jeb bush survive that process? >> jeb bush can survive it, chris christie can survive it. it's just what i say on immigration reform. you don't go half in. you don't stick your toe in the water and then have a blogger write something nasty about you, then pull it back. you keep going in and you crush the blogger and you keep moving. and if somebody that's an extremist on talk radio attacks you, y
anybody who mitt romney was. as soon as it won the nomination, i think it was one rick santorum dropped out, they decided to focus on discipline. they thought any topic that was not on obama are the economy was not worth a dollar spent. is spent entirely until just before the convention on banging on the economy and the obama. to a certain extent, we have an incumbent president running for re-election, it is a referendum on the incumbent. it is a referendum on the economy. but the thing about it is, you have got to define your own candidate in a way and a positive way biographical advertising and testimonial advertising. you need to make them a real, three-dimensional, trustworthy individual. think of the boy scouts. that is a general idea. that is a general thing you want to get across. you need to apply that to your candidate in order to protect them from the slime that is coming. in the romney campaign, they adamantly chose not to do that. the obama campaign, give credit where credit is due, they saw their opponent was undefined. i sat with some focus groups. other than a romney was
to be our candidate. newt gingrich was going to be our candidate. rick santorum was going to be our candidate. i don't want to leave out michele bachmann. i think she was a our can date for a while too. it was up and down. that's, part of the way our system works our democratic system works as we go state by state and fight for it. there is some benefit for that. it forces you to deal with voters. every voter in new hampshire got a personnal visit from michele bachmann, herman cain. in a national primary you wouldn't have the opportunity as voter. more importantly the candidates wouldn't have to be in the town hall meetings and go through it. there are some good and bad parts of it. it does create some challenges, no question. >> steve schwarzman. >> rob, on, the super pacs on the republican side probably spent over $700 million, something like that. and it looks like, you know, they achieved almost nothing in terms of electing candidates that they targeted. so where does that leave that system? and what does it say about anything? it's a pretty stunning outcome with that much money
